Print Awareness

Children who have an awareness of print understand that the squiggly lines on a page represent spoken language. that print is organized in a particular way — for example, knowing that print is read from left to right and top to bottom. It is knowing that words consist of letters and that spaces appear between words. Print awareness is a child's earliest introduction to literacy.
